Kindergarten Lottery

The 2023-2024 Kindergarten Lottery application deadline is March 10, 2023.

To be eligible for the Kindergarten Lottery at Haskell you must complete all of the following:

  • Complete an application at the RPS 205 Welcome Center (501 7th Street) between Monday, January 2, 2023 and Friday, March 10, 2023. Find application requirements.

Attend a Mandatory Orientation at Haskell

Date Time
Thursday, February 23 1 p.m.
Friday, February 24 9 a.m.
Monday, March 6 1 p.m.
Tuesday, March 7 9 a.m.
Wednesday, March 15 9 a.m.

How Seats are Filled

A computerized, random lottery is run in April for students who applied for the lottery and whose parent/guardian attended an orientation. Sibling priority is given to students living in the same home as students who are already enrolled in the program (pre-kindergarten through 4th grade). Sibling preference does not apply to applicants for the upcoming year whose only sibling is currently enrolled in 5th grade.

 

Waitlist

A lottery waitlist is created and each student is assigned a number. 

When all lottery waitlist students have been placed, an interest list is used to place students. Sibling preference or prior STEAM/STEM experience within a year, a mandatory orientation appointment at the school and interest form responses are considered when placing students.  To fill out an interest list, please contact sherry.king@rps205.com.
